Playwright Itamar Moses ’99 with Yale faculty Daniel Egan (Music and Theater Studies), Shiri Goren (Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations), and Travis Zadeh (Religious Studies).
A panel featuring playwright Itamar Moses ’99 and faculty members from three different disciplines will discuss the Broadway adaptation of “The Band Visit” written by Moses with music by David Yazbek. Like the original Israeli film, the play tells the story of an Egyptian ceremonial police band stranded overnight in an Israeli desert town. The play, according to NPR, “tells a story of common ground between cultures.”
